Calling Teresa, do you copy?

Stop fiddling with the settings without knowing what you are doing. It is a waste of time - your time and everybody else's. There is no one universal setting for all scenes. You need to learn what works and why.

Learn the basics. Your questions reveal you need that.

I know I contradict myself now, but did you try "Green Square mode"? It is the closest you will come to full auto on a P&S, and it works in most situations. You can even see afterwards, in the exif, what settings it used.

Have you noticed the focus points? They tell you which parts of the picture, the autofocus computer selected. If you don't agree, you will have to change them. Do you know how to do that?
